"For what he put me through." Haney threatened payback for Lomachenko
Undisputed light heavyweight world champion Devin Haney (29-0, 15 KOs) once again promised to take on Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko (17-2, 11 KOs) on May 20. He recalled that a few years ago our compatriot didn't take the fight with the then 20-year old boxer, making him a long way to his goal.
Haynie said that in his interview with YouTube channel The Pivot Podcast, as reported by Boxing News 24. He admitted that he has no sympathy for Lomachenko and accused the Ukrainian boxer and his team of constant taunts.
"For me, it's personal. First of all, I don't like this dude at all. I don't think he's who he says he is. He's very arrogant. I wanted this fight four years ago, but they went the other way. They said I'm the champion by email. They said I didn't have a real belt. Now I want to prove to them all how many levels I'm above him. This is the guy you called number one. He was called the best regardless of weight class. Well, now I'm that guy. So I'm going to make him pay for what he put me through," Haney stated menacingly.
